In 2019, APM Reports teamed up with the Associated Press to investigate the murder case against 16-year-old Myon Burrell. Burrell was serving a life sentence for the 2002 shooting death of 11-year-old Tyesha Edwards in Minneapolis. In January 2020, AP lead reporter Robin McDowell published her investigation and produced a broadcast version for MPR News with Sasha Aslanian of APM Reports. In December 2020, Burrell's sentence was commuted and he was released after 18 years in prison. In April 2021, Reveal featured the investigation and the role it played in getting a rare second chance for a juvenile lifer in an episode entitled "The Jail Tapes in the Dumpster."
